i plan to put my car up on my lift and check around the area. i'll report back what i find.
Elle was my SA at the time - she's now gone apparently. I believe Trent, one of the shop foremen, was the one to take it out so ask your SA to ask Trent about this. I'm sure he remembers - it was in February. As mentioned throughout this thread, there appear to be several different causes (ie e-brake, heat shield, rotor, etc). Good luck and keep us posted.
